Mechanical engineers develop and design components and machinery used in many industries like manufacturing, construction, water, power, health and transport. They also manage teams of technicians and craftspeople who carry out installation and maintenance work. You could design and oversee the manufacturing of many products ranging from medical devices to new batteries. Mechanical engineers design power-producing machines such as electric generators, internal combustion engines, and steam and gas turbines as well as power-using machines, such as refrigeration and air-conditioning systems. You would also design other machines inside buildings, such as elevators and escalators, as well as design material-handling systems, such as conveyor systems and automated transfer stations. If you are technically minded, good at maths and science, and like solving problems, a professional career in engineering could be a great move for you.
